枉然与安然
In Vain or In Peace
黄力夫弟兄 Leaf Huang
北卡华人福音基督教会 CCMC
若不是耶和华建造房屋,建造的人就枉
然劳力;若不是耶和华看守城池,看守
的人就枉然警醒。 你们清晨早起,夜
晚安歇,吃劳碌得来的饭,本是枉然;
惟有耶和华所亲爱的,必叫他安然睡觉。
Unless the LORD builds the house, the builders
labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the
city, the guards stand watch in vain. In vain you
rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to
eat-- for he grants sleep to those he loves.
诗 Psm127:1-2
